Today Congressman David Scott (GA-13) announced the availability of applications for students interested in receiving a congressional nomination for admission to the U.S. Air Force, Merchant Marine, Military or Naval Academy.

“Having the privilege to nominate Thirteenth District students to attend the U.S. Military Academies is one of my most important and rewarding responsibilities,” said Congressman Scott. “Each year I am more and more inspired by the talent and high character of the students who have received nominations from my office.  They truly represent the best and the brightest of our community.  And I strongly encourage any young person who wants to become a leader and serve our country to consider attending one of the U.S. military academies.  Each academy provides a top-tier education valued at more than $400,000, truly rare experiences, and rewarding careers in military service. ”

Interested students should complete a Congressional Nomination Application available on Congressman David Scott’s website here. All completed applications must be submitted by Friday, October 27, 2017 via mail or personal delivery to Congressman Scott’s Jonesboro or Smyrna Office.  

To be considered for an appointment to a service academy, an applicant must be nominated from an authorized person, including a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives or Senate.  Applicants must also meet the following requirements as of July 1 of the year of admission to a service academy: be at least 17 years old and not older than 23; a U.S. citizen; a legal resident of Georgia’s Thirteenth Congressional District; unmarried; not pregnant; and have no legal obligation to support children or other dependents.
